Mushroom sculpture

From: Jessica Kottke <jessica>
Date: Thursday, March 22, 2007
Our museum acquired a small sculpture made of mushroom membranes
(Kombucha fungus) preserved with a light coating of myrrh resin.  Is
there a simple method that could be used to extend the life of both
the fungus and the myrrh preservative while in storage?
